River Willow 8"x8" oil

This spot was pretty far from any trails or road. I had painted near here previously and wanted to explore it a little more. I chose this view for completely non-artistic reasons - I was tired of lugging all of my paint supplies through the brush and I had packed a great lunch and couldn't wait any longer. In the past I have found that I would search and search for a subject and find nothing, using up all of my available time. Now, I pick a location, unpack my gear, sit and look...eventually the subject of the painting finds me. By the way, while I was painting this, the biggest turtle I've ever seen came by. He walked/swam right up the middle of the river going against the current. Another treat and reason to paint and explore outside of the studio.
